All have heard about a diet 5:2 which quickly became very popular. Now we present you the diet 4:3 which is very similar to do it.
After diet 5:2 achieved world fame, appeared on the scene a new diet, very similar to it, which tends to take place on the throne.
Otherwise the diet 5:2, which provides 2 days to abstain from food or to eat light meals (women up to 500 calories, up to 600 men), while the remaining 5 days you can eat normal, the diet 4:3 is based on another principle – a day eat whatever you want, and the next day you fast, or you’re on a diet. The essence of the diet is just that, alternately repeating a day eating and fasting one day.
How should you hold your diet?
Dr. Vardi Christa and Bill Gottlieb who together wrote the book “Diet for every other day,” explaining that the diet is very simple.

- Drink plenty of water
- Drink tea or coffee without sugar
- Chewing gum (without sugar)
- If you do not want to cook, eat more raw vegetables or set for dishes that are prepared quickly and easily
